I wish some woc would use a lip liner with nude lipsticks. No one should think a powdered donut mouth looks good.a lip liner with nude lipsticks. No one should think a powdered donut mouth looks good. 2. Why do so many cosmetic companies create foundation for woc either too red or too yellow? Where are the neutral shades? That's all I got for now!
Yaasss! The Tyrone look ain't happening. I had never worn nude lipsticks until a MUA showed me Velvet Teddy with a lipliner. I finally started buying more nudes

I may have bought the palette to get the VIB Trio with the Armani products...
!!! You have to tell me if the Armani trio is worth it... although it seems to have disappeared now. I was thinking about getting it at the time.

Got this today and cannot wait to try. This is the first gift of Armani that had no color products in "beige" or something I can't use. This weekend I am going to fry it all. I am especially excited to try the lip stain. That red screams "rich".

So, would it be wrong for me to buy the new Buxom eye palette in May Contain Nudity, just for the name? It looks like countless other warm neutral palettes I already have but people are saying good things about the formula of these shadows...

I made a custom one I would say they are close to UD, MUFE quality. Soft, pigment and easy to blend. If you were to pick it up you would hear no complaints from me.

Example of what I mean about a blogger doing research: if a brand offers 5 shades of a product, don't tell us there were only 3 shades of the collection just because they only sent you 3. Not cool. I can find that out with a quick trip to the company's website, which renders you of no help to me me, and of no use. It makes me mistrust any review after that. I had a similar situation with a blogger ranting about lack of colors available in a foundation, based n the fact that the store she went to only sold certain shades. Again, visit the website and find out! One of those darker shades she lamented was nonexistent was my HG shade. Glad I did not depend on her. This is in the WOC random thoughts because I think when this happens it is even more of a detriment to us (especially when it comes to base products). Sometimes when we have been reading a blog for a long time we tend to trust that their information is complete. Luckily for us on Specktra, there are people who do their research and/or people willing to gently correct us if wrong.

I use blogs as a starter point, things look and wear different on lighter complexions and also different textured complexions. For example I use Temptalia for reference on new products and do my own research in store for items that interest me... I have passed on limited edition shades because her swatches were off or her swatches looked patchy (when a lip primer or liner coulda helped solve the issue). She also has given negative thoughts on products working for darker complexions that have been HG for me... She is a different skin tone and things simply look different on her. She is greatly helpful but from there I learned to play in store before deciding. Makeup for me is all about experimenting and being creative
